Dh'ionnsaich Iain Friseal, Gobha Airgid Inbhir Nis, a chiùird anns na 1930an aig Medlock and Craik, seudairean agus luchd-dèanamh uaireadairean aig 6 Sràid na Drochaid, Inbhir Nis. An dèidh làimhe, bha togalaichean aig a' chompanaidh ann an Exchange Place agus Geata na Bànrigh.

Anns an earrann chlaistinn seo bho na 1970an, tha Mgr. Friseal a' cuimhneachadh air mar a bha farpais am measg nan seudairean. Tha an dealbh seo, a chaidh a thoirt le Taigh-tasgaidh agus Gaileiridh Ealain Inbhir Nis (IMAG), a' sealltainn fear de na h-earrannan aig Iain Friseal - bràiste Clann Fhriseil leis an t-suaicheantas 'Je suis prest' (Tha mi deiseil).

'There was a tremendous amount of jealousy and, of course, workshops like Medlock and Craik's, and any of the workshops in those days, were taboo to the public. They were taboo to anybody, except the staff. Nobody worried about the front shop staff and if the front shop staff went up and said that we were making a casket, doing this or doing that, they weren't particularly worried about that. What they were worried about was that anybody would put their foot inside the workshop and see it. As long as they could get the thing to the customer without anybody seeing it but the customer, they'd done their job. And that's what they set out to do from the very beginning; they would never share it. In other words, be in a position - like I am today - if somebody come in and said 'Are you doing anything, John?' and if I said 'Well, I'm making up a chain for so and so' I would say 'Well, do you want to see it?' I would go into the safe and take it out and let them see it. That wasn't done in my day. You didn't do that. You did that after it was given to the people that ordered it, but not before. You were never allowed to see it beforehand - only the people that were working on it'
